COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Røyk Uten Ild (Smoke Without Fire) is our smoky beer, here we have tried to make a beer as smoky as we can using our smoked malt from Weiermann. We have made a fairly dark and flavourful beer. Apart from the special malt the rest of the malt bill (86%) is smoked malt. You could also say that this is a smoked wheat beer, because we have used our wheat beer yeast here. The beer is not scary but actually very nice even for those that aren’t smoke beer fanatics....try it and you will see. Contains malted barley, Amarillo hops, wheat beer yeast, and lots of smoked malt from Bamberg, Germany. 8% alc, 33 ibu, 48 ebc. Serving temp 8 - 12C or 46 - 53F.

Sampled at the Richmond Gather XIII. Clear very deep mahogany pour with good tan head. Definitely bambergy. Smokey bacon hammy, similar to aecht schlenkerla in many ways, but not quite as good. A little cardboard though. Still, really good brew.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2011
Bottle courtesy of BrewEngineer. Thanks! Pours a dark reddish brow, clear, with a thin tan head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of smoke, anise, roasted malts, faint berry-like fruits. The taste is smoke, leafy hops, faint roasted malts. Medium bodied. Pretty much a bacon/sausage beer, but a good one.

Smoky and roasty aroma. Flavor is sweet with smoke and roasted malt. Moderate carbonation with a slick mouthfeel. Very nice smoked beer.

Smell: Salty smoked ham Taste: Very mild compared to the nose. Salty but light. Nice but nothing spectacular. After taste is a bit too thin and watery

theisti (3258) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JAN 5, 2011
500 ml bottle shared by beastiefan2k. Pour is a hazed brown caramel color along with a smallish off white head. Aroma is smoke, earthy peat and some mild tart black cherry. Interesting nose, aromas play together nicely. Taste is heather, smoke, earthy peat, along with the mild black cherry sweetness of the nose. Taste is a bit less integrated than the nose, but is still quite nice. Palate is medium to heavy, sparse carbonation, with a lingering peat mineral finish. Interesting beer, well executed. Thanks for sharing this one Eugene!

Smoked malt aroma, not much else. Very pleasant. Moderate smoke, some citrus and fruitiness and a nice malt backing. Soft mouthfeel. Tasty stuff.

Bottle, at Håndverkerstuene. It’s a very dark brown beer, a nice, dense, beige head sits on top. Its aroma is smoked and meaty, bacon like and woody, with some roasted notes and a hint of sourness. Slightly sourish flavor with some licorice and a little smoke, not as smoked as the aroma. Roasted malts and some sweetness too, finishing sweet and roasted. Full body. A quite lovely smoked beer, but I would like it a bit more pronounced, especially the smoke flavor. 100820
